How exactly has he not done the job, Tony, and how do you think Romney will do something better?


Obama's a divider. He has no solutions to our problems. The country has its collective brow beaten. Time for a change. Romney's the only other option.

Obama hasn't lived up to anyone's expectations, especially those who didn't like him in the first place and thus placed even higher demands on him than his supporters. That isn't anything new. No ethical lines crossed in that regard. Those same people aren't taking his failures in context, either. It's typical politics to set the bar above reason, make it impossible to get the feet off the ground, and then declare the jump a scratch. Both sides do it. Nobody has a level head, and nobody plays fairly in the game. It's a nation of political scumbaggery.

I voted for Obama. I consider him a failure, and there are lots of things about him that rub me the wrong way. I cannot claim to be honest if I say anything differently. I still wouldn't vote for Romney/Ryan as a ticket. I said this elsewhere: if Obama wins, it will not be because of his merits or campaign. It will be because of how much of a mess and absurdity the Republican party has become. The Tea Party is like the Atkin's Diet. There's something to be learned from both, but they're also dangerous and not things that are longterm goodness. In other words, the Republicans are listening to the wrong voices, and as long as they listen to those voices, they'll be in trouble. The problem is that those fucked voices are also the loudest and will unfortunately be the only ones left in the room before they realize they gutted their own hopes and agendas.

I don't agree with Romney's plans, but even if I did, I wouldn't vote for him. The powers driving the party are ugly powers that I could never respect, even if they had the very best talking head.
You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?

If Obama had walked on water, and we were still where we are today I'd say he fell short of the expectations put on him.
You don't elect a king, you get a president with a congress and senate. He's done good, and I look forward to what he does
in his second term.

Obama is an intelligent and honest man, in addition to being an inspiring leader. The obstacles he encountered, including a an obtuse congress, the obviously racist attacks against him (think witch doctor and food stamp attacks) disrespect (think "you lie!", birther nonsense, first refusal to raise the debt ceiling in our country's history and religious attacks) did not prevent him from bringing our troops home, turning around the economic factors such as lowering the deficit, unemployment and foreclosures, saving the auto industry and gaining equal rights for woman and gay Americans. He provided health insurance for 40 million people and rolled back unfair practices in the health insurance and financial industries. This decision is not even close, though I think some Americans deserve the abuse they would receive from a Romney/Sheldon Adelson administration

And on a lighter note, how can you possible argue with Katy Perry's endorsement at an Obama rally last night?!

You forgot to mention that 17 of 24 of Romney's foreign policy advisors are from the Bush administration, the same people that got us into the big mess in Iraq and Afghanistan, like Paul Wolfowitz, John Bolton, etc. A vote for Romney is a return to this same policy. "Let's just go to war and see what happens".

This would be the part that's even scarier to me than his war on women's rights. The last thing we need is another clueless pampered aristocrat puppet of the neo-cons as president!!

Curious as to what folks think about this ad. Personally, I think it's harmless but at the same time useless and a bit classless.

I'm not sure why you think it's classless. Admittedly, I'm a big Lena Dunham fan anyway, but I thought this was absolutely brilliant!! Nothing wrong with a little sophisticated, well-written humor to make an excellent point!
